Eunice Matrics Celebrate

On Friday, 28 August, Eunice’s matrics had their annual End of Matric celebration. They started off their day with three periods of academic study, then moved to the quad where they each received a small plaque
with their names and the year inscribed on it. These plaques will be fixed to specific bricks around the water fountain to commemorate their matric year at Eunice and add to the rich history of the school. After the ceremony in the quad, matrics moved to the hockey fields for a socially distanced picnic. The matrics participated in the Jerusalema Challenge, before handing out ‘Most Likely to……..’ awards. The day’s events were characterised by a healthy amount of mischief and a few teachers (and students) ended the day covered in flour!

St Andrew’s matrics celebrate 40 Days

The matrics were in fine spirit this week and enjoyed a day of
fun before they start with their prelim exams tomorrow. The head boy, Dale Flecher, was tied to the flagpole by his fellow matrics and had no chance of escaping. The matrics ditched their uniforms and donned a number of very interesting and colourful outfits. The day ended with a braai.

Eunice welcomes back Grade 8 and 9 learners

Eunice High School welcomed back their Grade 8 and 9 learners on Monday, 24 August, after months of online learning. Each Eunice lady received a small welcoming gift after they had been successfully screened and sanitised. Ms Anderson (accompanied by Serahne Visser) entertained the Grade 8s with music while they lined up next to the Adele de Jager hall. Every student had her temperature checked after filling in an electronic screening form, which served as an attendance register.

The Grade 8s were welcomed by the headmistress, Ms Zinette de Wet, who encouraged them to stay positive (not the virus!). Since Monday all grades at Eunice have been back at school in alternating groups to ensure social distancing and adherence to Covid-19 regulations.
